    just bought myself an actifry and seem to be living on chips for last few days, i'm pretty poor until end of month but quite content to stick to sw chips (most with hex a serving on cheese on top yum yum). do you think its okay to eat a lot of sw chips

    It's fine to eat plenty, but I would say that if you can, get some variety in there. More green/coloured veg. Even if you're skint you can get some bargains in Aldi!

    But yep...sw chips are free :)

    lol...noodles pasta and chips. Now that's what I call a carb-fest!

    No, it's often not like a diet, being on SW. I love it. It's so easy. Not always...there are times when it's a bit of a struggle but a lot of the time (usually when I'm eating a massive bowl of pasta or rice) that I stop and chuckle!

    Totally have that self destruct button myself too!!!! Am currently working on de-activating it!!LOL!!
    As for SW chips.... i live on them too. Along with Jacket potatoes that is!! Potatoes make up the base of most of our meals so I am totally thankful they are free on green!!!

    There was a lady in my consultants other class that had lost 6 stone but because she was skint, all she ate to lose that amount was beans and sw chips!!! Proof it works even if not totally healthy due to lack of variation!! LOL!!

    Wish I had an actifry! It's fine to eat chips and as many as you want but do try and get some superfree foods (from the yellow pages) in there too. My C was talking last week about the difference between superfree and free foods and it really is supposed to boost your weight loss to encorporate lots of superfreebies in there too.

    I thought about getting an actifry but never got round to it, might just have to now since it does the chips much quicker, my mum got one and it was amazing.

    Try and get some speed foods in there as well if you can, although potatoes are free we need to balance it out a bit on green cos of the high carb allowance. Like the prev poster said go and check out the deals. If you're filling up on speeds then eat sw chips to your hearts content!!!

    What on earth is an actifry?????
